Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is written by the wonderful Susan Roberts. She shows us how to create a flower by cutting and melting ribbon pieces. It’s perfect for winter, when my hands seem to be cold all the time. 🙂

For my sample I used ribbon and tulle bought at Hobby Lobby. Both were cut with the two smallest Blossom Nestabilities® dies, heated and stuck together with a decorative brad.

A sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Apothecary Labels was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the second largest of the Classic Oval SM Nestabilities® dies.

Two pieces of Fancy Pants Country Boutique Paper were cut and embossed with the single leaf dies from the Bitty Blossoms Shapeabilities® die set. The leaves were sanded before they were adhered under the ribbon flower, who was in turn adhered to the lower half of the sentiment oval.

Another piece as well as more Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the second largest Decorative Label Eight Nestabilities® die. The patterned paper was sanded and cut on the embossed edge before it was stitched to the white die cut. The sentiment panel was adhered to the center of the fancy panel with foam adhesive squares.

The bottom corners of a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock were rounded and a faux stitched border was added with a black gel pen. The layer was then embossed with the So Trendy M-Bossabilities ® folder. It was adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half with the bottom corners rounded. Rhinestones finish off the card.
